3Inch 3Iootcd Question 'ow Up

Efforts on the part of the Christian
Science Church to obtain from the
Board r,f Education official reoojmltlon
of certificates issued by practitioners
aa excuses' for the absence through III
r.ess of teachers or pupils wno are
members of the church have met with
faifure. The petition of the Christian
Scle-tlits was referred by the Board
to Mrs. Isaac' Franklin Russell, the
only lawyer In Its membership, for In
vestl ration. Mrs. Rusaell reported ad
versely and the Board of Education
has turned the matter over to the Botrd
of Superintendents with authority to
act as It deems best.
As a reeult of thla move It Is certain
that the certificate of Christian Sci
ence practitioner will not be recog
n.zed as valid excuses for atin'.-e
through llles by the public school
authorities here. The Board of Super-l.-tendenta
repeatedly In the past has
refused such rt-cognllion. It Is fully
expected that some teacher whose cer
tificate Is rejected by the Hoard win
bring a test suit in the courts ana,

Interest in educational circles will not
have been uttered.
Previous Case Recalled.
V.Tven the ca wae argued before
the Board of Education the Christian
S-ientlste were represented by Al&ert
F Gilmore. As evidence that Me
church of which he Is a memter had
been "legalized" In New York State,
he cited the Medical Practice act ot
1507. ahirh says that "this act shall
not be construed to affect the practice
of the religious tenets of any church."
Mr. Gilmore arguM that the exemp
tion which he said legalized the practice
of Christian Science was recognized by
agreement between the church and offi
cials of the State Medical Association as
adequate. He cited the case of the Peo
ple vs. Cole, which resulted from the
arret! on complaint of the New York
Medical focety of a Christian Science
practitioner, accused of practlFing medi
cine illegally. The Court of Appeals
ru'ed In Cole's favor
Mr. Ollmore alio cited the case of the
Pe-jple tg. Vogelgwar.g, a spiritualist, in
deciding which the court said : "The law
exacts no license for healing by prayer,
by the power cf religion, but one who
heals by other agencies must have the
training of the expert." Statements by
life and accident Insurance companies
that they recognized .rlstlan Science
practitioners also were presented by Mr.
. In her Investigation of the petition
Mrs. Itussjfll consulted W. A. Purring
ton. an attorney of i: Wail street, and
her conclusions w er supported by him.
Mrs. nnssrlPa Itulllis.
"It Is perfectly clear." said Mrs. Ru
sell. in her report to the Board of Edu
cation, "that a Christian Scientist Is not
a 'physician' in th common underi-tand-Inc
of the H-ord. It seems to me equally
clear trmt he is not a 'physician' wit!l!n
the meaning of the statute, but only a
layman allowed to practice his so-called
religious tenet- under the exception of
the statute.
"He is. not a regularly 'licenced phy
slclan,' who alone In mentioned In the
